Everywhere USA, April 2015—Putting a little pizzazz in something that’s been around for thousands of years, soy is a staple for the world—but in the U.S., up until recently we’ve been slow to catch on.

Everywhere, March 2015—We don’t always do this, but last week we received a blanket e-mail purportedly written by a woman from Cleveland, Ohio, a long-time newspaper columnist for that city’s Plain Dealer.

We don’t have space for all 42 of her lessons, but here are a few we thought you’d enjoy. (Even if this is another social networking ruse, these musings are still nice to contemplate…)

Everywhere, U.S.A., January 2015—there’s been a lot of press lately suggesting that fat wasn't so bad for us after all? Here’s an update of the skinny on fat.
